I love the Orange Kitty, Sharon!

I had no idea though that you had pictures of Parker.  

 

And although I don't know about Verizon, I definitely have to agree with you about Norton. This was my last error message from them.

Well, you'll have to explain to me - how?  I couldn't do that no matter what!  Computerly challenged here!

Is wine served in here?  Preferably Zinfandel?  I was a waitress for 10 years.  Does this entitle me to a discount?  Or perhaps I could serve your drinks as long as they aren't real complicated.  I worked food restaurants as well as bars so have experience in both.

 

Sharon, your pictues are breathtakingly beautiful!!

 

The messages about Norton are getting scary.  I have Norton as well as a firewall and have never had any problems.  My sysem is set for automatic weekly updates but my subscription is due for renewal in December.  Yikes!!  I hope I don't have the same kind of experience because I'm not computer literate at all.

 

Love the cafe.  Interesting bird flying through.

 

Hugs,

Thank you, Rhoda, for the really nice compliment on my photos; they were the first I'd taken with my new digital SLR, and I'm fairly pleased with them.

Yes, wine is served here - and anything else you like. I'm about to ask for a Pink Squirrel, since the touchpad on my new laptop has stopped working.  Went to the HP website for help, but can't get that until somehting downloads - which so far has taken more than 20 minutes.    Anyone here have any experience with that - touchpad not working?  I went into Control Panel & made sure that the touchpad is enabled; I tried turning the computer off (all night), then on. . .but the little arrow steadfastly refuses to move unless I attach a mouse -and the whole idea of a laptop is to be as portable as possible.    Perhaps Compaq should stand in front of Norton as I aim . . . .

 

Nice to have a professional waitress here, Rhoda!  You don't need a discount because all drinks are on the house - i.e, Mags.

Eeeek!  I don't have a laptop but anytime my keypad doesn't work, it's usually a battery problem someplace.  I have a wireless keypad and HAD a wireless mouse until I shot the sucker (I wouldn't have wireless mouse again if it was given to me), and got a Microsoft wheel mouse.  I have a Dell computer but also need to shoot my HP printer.  I love the weapon the kitty is carrying.  I didn't take out the extended warranty on the printer and it started acting up 3 weeks after warranty ran out.  I think I'll switch to an Epson printer.

 

I gave up waitressing for an administrative office assistant job which turned into code systems administrator, but I always loved my waitress jobs.

 

I'll have a wine this evening after church and burgers, if not too late.

 

Hugs,

I see!   Both Colleen and Sharon now say the drinks are on me ... every day?  every week?  every month?   every year?

 

Good job not many people pop in !

 

I've been with loads, felt like, of people this afternoon - house warming - 'who are you?, how do you know M and E?'

 

And someone else said, 'Do you do work with Guides?  Where have I seen you?'   ' No, not there' I said .... Ahh there, we said !!

 

Felt like so many people and so many children - good job they had a bouncy castle and amazingly only one little girl, so many little boys.

 

I'll have one of those Raspberry drinks..

Just dropping by to welcome you, Rhoda. It is great to have you here! You have come to a little-known but fabulous place of good cheer where we discuss the fabric of our lives and of our losses over smart drinks with friends. Best of all, as Mags and Sharon have already wisely said, the tab is always on Mags, "every day, every week, every month, every year..." 

 

(Except maybe on her very special day November the 27th. )

 

I can certainly sympathize with your computer woes too Rhoda and if you would like, when you have to re-new your Norton, we can take out a contract on Symantec together.

 

Maybe in honor of your joining us, the Piano Chick will return and Sweet Wendy will come back to dance on the piano top again for us. It has been far too many moons without them.

 

I also thought I would remind everyone to put their clocks back an hour where applicable as my brother just reminded me. 

 

Clock How cool is this clock? If you run your cursor across it, it follows and re-organizes itself. I was also astounded that during the 4 and 1/2 years that I have known about it, it changes with months, leap years and spring and fall time changes while I can barely post without a hundred mistakes. Sigh.  

 

And last but not least, Little Gracie also asked me to remind everyone of the Annual Petloss Halloween Open House and to tell you:

 

 

 

Got to love those little orange kitties...

Those orange kitties are really a hoot.

 

When it comes to clocks, I always forget something.  No way do I get up at 2 a.m. to set time back.  I changed the one in my car when I came home from church last night.  Before I went to bed, I changed the stove, microwave, kitchen wall clock, little living room clock, chime clock in living room, wall clock in computer room, wall clock in my bedroom, digital in my bedroom, my watch and the television.  I thought the vcr changed itself, as my computer does.  But lo and behold, good thing I checked.  It doesn't change itself.  Then I was out for a few minutes and came home and found message on my answering machine that came through at 12:05 and it was only 11:05.  I had forgotten to change the phone.  I think we depend too much on clocks and this changing of the times upsets the biorhythm thing.  I was wide awake at 5 a.m.  Wonder what it will be like next year when we change back in March and don't move forward again until November.

 

Norton upped their prices for the 2007 updates in preparation for something, don't recall what because I didn't understand it anyway.

 

Symantec is sounding better all the time.  Sure glad the drinks are on the house.  I only drink diet coke or root beer during the day cuz I spend a lot of time in my car driving here and there and everywhere.  But in the evening, when I'm in for the night, hmmmm - a nice glass of wine, or when it gets down near zero outside, a lucious cup of hot chocolate.

 

Hugs,

Thank you for the beautiful pictures of the Appalachian Mountains.  I love them.  My family had a house in the Berkshires when I was a child. I wish I had bought it.

Hello everyone,
I know, I know, it's been just too long since dropping by. My apologies but life just sometimes gets in the way, rather it's more like Dad stuff. Believe it or not, this month, for those of you who know of him, he'll be 94 on the 18th. He keeps me laughing though and looked amazing as a pirate 'Hook' for Halloween (costume and make-up by yours truly) and managed first prize at the retirement home contest. I was so surprised.
Anyway, is anyone interested in a little afternoon tea over the weekend, perhaps a little soft music playing and just a little chat to catch up on news?
I guess there are a few who visit with U.S. Thanksgiving soon. Happy Day to those preparing a feast!
Any fav. movies seen lately? What are your fav. holiday movies? Mine is either 'Elf' or 'The Grinch.'
Well, I'll pay the tab this weekend and give Mags a break! (did you hear that Mags???)

Hi Wendy, Yes I heard loud and clear, woweee !!

 

Hey, your Dad is doing really well.

 

I'll drop in this afternoon, in between getting a walk and another walk to order new wardrobe and have lots of cups of decaf tea, with sweeteners please?

 

And don't tempt me with all those lovely creamy, choccy biscuits ...

Hi everyone,

I haven't been here lately but I thought with the holidays approaching, perhaps we could share our plans and traditions for Thanksgiving Day. 

I was born and raised in the Berkshires, Massachusetts and my folks still live in the family home.  I don't get there as much as I would like to anymore.  When my daughter was little - she is now 23 - we would spend most every weekend there.  The house sits on the East Rim of the Appalachian Trail, overlooking Mt. Greylock, the highest point in Massachusetts.  It was a great place to grow up - things are much more relaxed, slow, and everyone knows each other.  We will be spending Thanksgiving there this year, along with my daughter and my husband.

This picture is the view of Mt. Greylock off the deck of my Parents' house.  Nice hey?

We will celebrate with a traditional turkey dinner, complete with all the trimmings.  I love spaghetti squash and turnip, so I will be bringing those dishes, along with my "famous" homemade cranberry sauce (the secret is the fresh grated orange peel)!  The morning starts with family stopping over for the traditional Mimosas (it must be fresh oranges, squeezed and strained) and shrimp cocktail.  My brother always brings some sort of foul that he killed and dressed...he is an avid hunter. 

We will give thanks for all that we love and all that we have.  This year will be sad for me because it will be the first Thanksgiving without my beloved Snuggy. I would always bring him up to the Berkshires with me.  My folks loved him as well and had a bed and pillows for him down in the family room.  But I will try to give thanks for all of the 15 years that I did have Snuggy. I will also give thanks for having my Parents still with me. 

Happy Thanksgiving to you all and may we be blessed with health and happiness.

Love,

Christine

Wow!!  Beautiful setting there at mom and pop's Christine.

 

Wouldn't mind the recipe for that homemade cranberry sauce.  I usually buy Yoder's because it has the orange peel in it, but I've never made it.

 

Sigh..... I'm going to be spending Thanksgiving without family to speak of.  I'm babysitting my year and one half old great-grandson while his parents are in Detroit at a football game.  My kids are all going elsewhere this year.  At the same time I will be cat sitting for two cats whose parents will be out in California.  One of the cats is sick and on medication so I will need to go over there a couple of times a day.  I've invited a girlfriend over but I'm not even cooking a turkey.  There will be just the two of us so I'm going to put together one of those chickens on the rack sitting on a can of gingerale.  I could use a can of beer but I have some long expired Vernor's that I need to use up.

 

It will be my first Thanksgiving without Maggie Rose.  It will be a first through the holiday season for many of us I think.  I will certainly be praying for all of us who will be missing our furbabies and will be thankful for the time we did have with them.

 

If I don't get back to the Cafe before Thanksgiving, I hope everyone has a great one.

 

Hugs,

 

Rhoda

Oh, Christine - that mountain! My kind of country! Sounds like an absolutely perfect place to enjoy Thanksgiving. I know it will be hard without Snuggy, but you have his presence in your life - and in your Eternity - for which to be thankful.  I think you'll have a nice day knowing that he's still with you and the day will come when you will be with him - forever.

It's so easy to think of things we've lost - but so much more healing to remember all we have to be grateful for, even amidst loss.  I never got to give my Shade any turkey - he was here & gone so very quickly; but he's mine forever, and so I'm grateful for that.

 

Rhoda, it's too bad that your children count a football game as more important that giving thanks, but we can only do so much.  You have your friend - and Maggie Rose's spirit.  I hope your day will be a very pleasant one.

I wish I had that cat here with the rat-a-tat gun because I agree with what everyone has said about Norton.

 

I spent half a day on Thursday in tears trying to get the 2007 version downloaded.  I have Windows XP and it wasn't compatible with the Microsoft spyware and I had to remove it.  And I couldn't get it off.  Then I had to do this and do that and Symantec doesn't have a human being that you can find a telephone number for.  When I finally did get a human I couldn't understand him.  I told him to just delete my renewal and I would start all over again at a later date.

 

It takes them 30 seconds to push a credit card through for the upgrades and an entire afternoon trying to download from an un-user friendly system.

 

I finally called on my brother who is the computer expert in my family.  He came this morning and it took him one hour and a half to get it loaded.  I have cable high speed internet.  God only knows how long it would have taken if I were on dial-up or a slower speed.  And there was nothing simple about it.

 

Next year I am switching to Zone Alarm or perhaps the virus protection offered by the cable company.

 

As for Thanksgiving, it is really my granddaughter who thinks football is more important.  My kids, however, are going to in-laws or their own children's places except for my youngest daughter.  My youngest daughter is also my best friend, and she is in Houston on business.  She is staying over the holiday.

 

But I'm sure I will be o.k., especially with Maggie Rose's spirit being around.  I know she watches over me.

 

Hugs,

 

Rhoda

Just dropping by to wish our Southern neighbors a most blessed Thanksgiving. Little Gracie is disappointed that I could only find last year's costume to re-cycle for her.

 

 

Great to see you here Tricia and Ruth! I had to smile picturing you 

vacuuming as Carmen Miranda, Tricia! 

 

Does anyone have room for fresh streusel pumpkin pie? It's one of my favorites. 

 

 

Make pie dough crust as usual 

Filling

  • 2 c. pumpkin

  • 1 can evaporated milk

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • 2 eggs, beaten

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Streusel Mixture

 

1/4 cup brown sugar


1/4 cup all-purpose flour


1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


2 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter, cut into pieces


For the Streusel Topping:  In a small bowl whisk together the sugar, flour, and cinnamon.  With a pastry blender or two knives, cut in the butter until crumbly.  


Garnish

  • 1 teaspoon grated orange

  • fresh whipping cream

Directions

  • Heat oven to 425

  • In bowl, mix all filling ingredients

  • Line pie crust

  • Bake 15 minutes, reduce to 350, then bake another 15 minutes

  • Sprinkle streusel mixture over top after cool

  • Fold orange peel into whipped cream and top off pie

I hope that you will all come back Monday for Mags' special day too. I promise not to do the cooking which should help!

 

As for catching up, Ruth, I am wondering if anyone has heard from Yvonne lately? I know she is planning on moving and maybe doesn't have computer access right now but I am keeping your seat warm for you ((((Yvonne)))) and missing you. I am also sending extra-big hugs to Rhoda today as it is her first Thanksgiving with Maggie Rose physically with her and I hope the day was not too hard for you.

 

So now that we are all here, gather round the fireplace everyone and let's raise a toast to Ed. I don't know where we would be without him and our Petloss family. We are indeed blessed to be together here.  

 

And may God Bless each one of you, my dear friends. I give thanks for each one of you and wish you all:

 

Happy Thanksgiving!

Whoops! I was so busy toasting, I once again forgot to say Grace before we ate.

 

Let us all paws for grace.

 

 

Let us pray to the One who holds us
in the hollow of His hands,
To the One who holds us in the curve of Her arms, and
To the One whose flesh is the flesh of hills and
    hummingbirds and angleworms,
Whose skin is the color of an old Black woman and
    a young white man; and the color of the leopard
    and the grizzly bear and the green grass snake,
Whose hair is like the aurora borealis, rainbows,
    nebulae, waterfalls, and a spider’s web,
Whose eyes sometime shine like the Evening Star,
    and then like fireflies, and then again like an
    open wound,
Whose touch is both the touch of life and the touch
    of death,
And whose name is everyone’s.
And what shall we pray?
Let us say, ‘thank you.’”

Hey Jo!! It's great to see you and the girls! They are absolutely beautiful! I bet you are counting the days until Friday and I am praying it goes well.

 

Little Gracie and I tried to make a cake but this is the best we could do so I am glad that you brought one, Jo! As for the Birthday Girl, I am sure she will be around as soon as she stops partying.

Happy Belated Brtthday, Mags,
Sorry to have missed 'your' day and do hope that it was full of delight and surprises. I've also sent you a private message in reply to your belated reply re: my queries about posting photographs, just so you know it's there.
Here on the West Coast of Canada, it's been a challenging month!
For three weeks, it was relentless, record rainfall. Our coastal mountains and creeks which drain into our city reservoirs, that all that created a high level of turbidity (silt in the water to 20 times the normal) that created the reservoir water supply unable to clorinate effectively or safely. A boil water or drink bottled water directive for the 2 million folks living in Greater Vancouver for 11 days came into effect on Nov. 16th.
What a diversion for our modern culture, seeking available bottles of water in local stores. It truly makes one realize the gift of clean water that we do mostly take for granted our of our taps. Even coffee shops were directed to cease making coffee until a clean water source was available.
Then, when the rain quit, the snow arrived and now is accompanied by very cold temperatures and power outages for thousands. (not at my house, so far, thank goodness!) Our roads on the northwest West coast, which includes Washington State, are mainly covered with ice today making driving residentially almost impossible.
Anyway, I am so glad to walk into the cafe and sit where it's warm, sunny with friendship and sip a hot cafe mocha. Tis nice to be back.
Oh yes, one more little update, for those of you who know of my dad, he turned 94 on Nov. 18th and is still going strong. On Halloween, he was such a good sport for a party and allowed me to transform him into the pirate, 'Hook!' Surprisingly, he won first prize for his costume!
Anyway, although it's very cold, the sun is shining, making for a lovely day with the backdrop of snow.
Well, that's enough news from my end of the world.
How's the weather at your corner of the world?
Cheers!
Wendy.

Oh, Mags, I am so very sorry to have missed your 29th birthday party! ;)  I've been so tied up with computer stuff - like trying to get my DSL to work; at this point, I can nearly recognize tech support people by their voices.   Got that settled (well, nearly) and tried to set up a wireless network so that I can work on my laptop without being strapped into this chair.  No go there at all; I've spent hours - literally - and my son, who works with computers, put in a solid 2 hours on Saturday & couldn't get the @@@@ thing to work. But wait!  It gets worse!  This morning, this system, my desktop, crashed altogether!!  The only way to get it up & running again was to employ System Recovery; you get the system back, *but* you lose everything you've put into it!  All my e-addys are gone; my Favorites are gone - everything.  Fortunately, I have backup disks of my photos.  I'm really not a happy camper at this point, and was wondering if anyone would fix me a quadruple pink squirrel - the tab for the entire place is on me if only someone will serve me!  Off now to find Bill Gates and commit mayhem upon his body. . . . .

Not to worry, Sharon, I keep getting belated birthday cards .. and thanks to everyone who has sent good wishes.

And now ..

 

Erm...cough....cough...you can back up favourites and desktop settings too !!

You either go into C:/Documents and Settings/(Your Name)/  then copy the Desktop and Favorites folder to your backup area.

 

Or
 
Click on

Start/Accessories/System Tools/Files and Settings Transfer Wizard/
then follow the instructions there, being careful to select 'Old Computer' to be backed up.

Then you copy the backup file to your backup area.

 

And when you want to bring it all back - run Files and Settings Transfer Wizard again for 'New Computer'

 

Smiles smugly ... I've been backing up my Favorites and Desktop for ages and have used them to restore when doing a complete Reinstall of Windows.

*Now* I learn about this!  Too late.  I have no backup discs of my e-addys. :(  The photos were the most important to me, and, as I have discs of all those, I'm ok there.  Programs I can always reinstall - and the important ones of those (namely, those to do with my photos :) ) are on the laptop.  I've never had to go through this before - what a hassle! Thanks for the info, Mags; guess I'll have to start backing stuff up.  May I have the Quadruple Pink Squirrel, please?

Dear Sharon....Good luck in finding Bill Gates...And, if you do find him, would you ask him if I can borrow some money :))

 

I'll join you for a double Pink Squirrel (whatever that is), and BTW, your photos are magnificent...Thanks for sharing them with us....

 

Here's to you finding Bill.....Cheers....Ruth

Sharon, I think you'll find on here .. that the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard includes email addresses.  I can't verify that personally as I've always backed up  my email addresses separately.

All this talk about windows and I sit here and the sunshine is streaming though mine on a cold winter's day. Almost time for going out and putting in a long run.
Before I go though, I wanted to say 'hi' to Ruth. It's good to see you here.
There was a heartwarming little story in the paper this past week about a cat. Here it is word for word and all I can add is my goodness what a miracle.
'Emerging with a shock of white fur, a cat stunned cargo workers in England as it jumped out of a goods container after a 17 day sea voyage from Isreal to Britain, a journey of more than 3,200 kilometres, an animal charity said Friday. The workers who discovered it, named the cat Ziggy because of its different coloured eyes, one green and one blue, like the rock singer David Bowie and his alter-ego, Ziggy Stardust.'
Always nice to read of a survival story of our little ones but I wonder about the owner of this cat. Has anyone heard any follow-up to this story? Mags, had you read about this?
Bye for now, I'll drop by later and have a snack and a warm cider.
Wendy

Mags, the info on saving stuff is news to me - and great to know. However, it can't possibly work if the entire system crashes, can it?  I mean, I even had to go through another "Welcome to Windows" hoop.  Anyway, it's too late now - everything is gone, gone with the wind.  And HP told me that my computer is obsolete, so they can't give me telephone tech support; however, if I go to the website. . . .   At which point I *screamed* "How can I go to a website when Windows won't open????????????"  and hung up.  Bah humbug.

 

A Pink Squirrel is a most delicious concoction of, let's see - creme of almond, creme de white cocoa, and heavy cream.  Mixes up a lovely pink; tastes like a cherry milkshake - and after just one, you don't care about Windows or crashes or Bill Gates. . . . .

After a long, exhausting BUT amazingly successful day of Christmas shopping, I fall through the doors of the Petloss Cafe to find... I'm the only one awake at this hour and here all alone!!!  Since it is advisable not to indulge too heavily in drink when alone, and since I would want more than one or two or.....  ???   I'll sign off, put my weary head on the pillow and wish you all a good night...  see you soon my fellow cafe-mates!!

Sharon, yes, of course it works, if you run the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard and save the file it creates onto an external disk, CD, whatever.  Then when you Reinstall Windows, you run that Wizard again and select 'new computer' and it brings in all the settings, files, etc you saved from the 'old computer' - which may be the same computer, but never mind, it's termed the 'old' and 'new' computer.

 

But no, if it's not saved on an external source (as your photos were .. smile !) it's gone for ever ... I'm trying not to laugh, as it is a very serious matter .... but the way you term things is rather aimed at making one laugh !

 

Best wishes.

And no, Wendy, I didn't see that news - great !!

And while I'm here, if I don't answer questions in the future, it's cos I'm rather tired or not at my PC ... had appt at Womens Hosp recently and have to go back in near future for a nice slug of Anaesthetic and people will be climbing all over me and will take a few samples and send them to the people with microscopes who will then let us all know just in time for a nice Christmas present, BAH HUMBUG indeed ..... hey ho.  But thankfully, there will be someone guarding my house.  And please don't sent private messages or emails because I'm maxed out, just prayers please.
